Re: [GreenYes] Fwd: [USCC] Dead Facilities
Too bad you specified NORTH America.  I know several spectacular examples in South America.  In fact, the tech guys in Rio's waste management company (COMLURB) can tell you how they could have set up a labor-intensive but effective (high recovery rate) city-wide recycling program long ago if they had been given the same dollars wasted on "big ticket" "recycling plants" built by public works-minded politicians that now stand idle and rotting....
Best regards,
